How DALL·E 2 Works

"DALL·E 2 is a system for text-to-image generation developed by my coauthors and me at OpenAI. When prompted with a caption, the system will attempt to generate a novel image from scratch that matches it."

Understanding Layout Algorithms

"[…] CSS is so much more than a collection of properties. It's a constellation of inter-connected layout algorithms. Each algorithm is a complex system with its own rules and secret mechanisms. It's not enough to learn what specific properties do. We need to learn how the layout algorithms work, and how they use the properties we provide to them."

jpeg-sandbox: Interactively edit individual DCT blocks in any JPEG image in the browser.

This is a very barebones editor that supports clicking on any pixel in a JPEG image to see the 64 DCT coefficients that make up that 8x8 block. Each individual coefficient can be edited through text.

Unraveling the JPEG

"JPEG images are everywhere in our digital lives, but behind the veil of familiarity lie algorithms that remove details that are imperceptible to the human eye. This produces the highest visual quality with the smallest file size—but what does that look like? Let's see what our eyes can't see!"

Visualizing Algorithms

"Algorithms are a fascinating use case for visualization. To visualize an algorithm, we don’t merely fit data to a chart; there is no primary dataset. Instead there are logical rules that describe behavior. This may be why algorithm visualizations are so unusual, as designers experiment with novel forms to better communicate. This is reason enough to study them."

Neat Algorithms - Paxos

"Paxos is a family of algorithms for teaching a whole bunch of decidedly unreliable processes to reliably decide on stuff. More formally: it allows a group of unreliable processors to deterministically and safely reach consensus if some certain conditions can be met, while ensuring the group remains consistent if the conditions can’t be met."
